Father’s Day is a time to celebrate all the memories we’ve shared with our dads, from the big things to the little things

Buying gifts for dads can be somewhat of a challenging affair. Do you buy him beer or socks? Or beer? Or socks? With Father’s Day fast approaching – on June 17th – it’s time to get the gift ideas flowing so you can celebrate the man who taught you how to ride a bike, who picked you up at silly o’ clock from parties, who even let you win once or twice in a game of footie.

As a nation we love treating our dads to something special on Father’s Day – according to Global Data, UK shoppers spend a total of £700 million*.

Whatever the size of your budget, leading high street retailer Robert Dyas has plenty of gifts to give. With heaps of handy tools, garden equipment and other nifty products, their shelves are filled with inspiration.

“Father’s Day is a time to celebrate all the memories we’ve shared with our dads, from the big things to the little things”, says Robert Dyas’ Head of Marketing, Rebecca Waters. “Whether your dad’s a DIY enthusiast, green-fingered gardener or simply the hard-to-buy-for type, we’ve got heaps that’ll bring a smile to his face. We’re even running our #DadTaughtMe campaign soon on social media, featuring videos of sons and daughters telling us treasured memories, to celebrate our amazing dads!”

Robert Dyas’ Father’s Day Checklist

If your dad’s never happier than when he’s experimenting in the kitchen, this Taylor’s Eye Witness 5-Piece Kitchen Knife Set (£19.99) will be a welcome present – as will this classic Robert Dyas Striped Apron (£5.99).

Looking for a humorous gift? The Creative Tops Mr Grumpy Mug (£3.99) is perfect for all the Mr Grumpys out there.

If it’s a gardening gift you’re after, you can’t go wrong with this Draper 3-in1 Garden Hand Tool Set (£7.99).

For dads that love to take charge of the barbecue, this Flame Master Portable Barbecue (£29.99) is a super choice. Small and compact, he can take it on camping trips, to festivals or simply set up an impromptu barbecue in the garden for easy alfresco eats. Add a fun touch to your gift by throwing in some Epic Snax Giant Toastin’ Marshmallows – 600g (£6.99) for toasting over the grill.

This Kitsound Diggit Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker (£39.99) is ideal for music fans, and perfect for some outdoor entertainment over the summer season. Alternatively, this Akai Bluetooth Parasol LED Speaker (£29.99) is a great option if you’re on a smaller budget.

If your dad’s a gadget lover, treat him to something useful with this Energizer 5000mAh Portable Power Bank (£14.99). Slim and compact, he can easily keep it in his wallet to make sure he’s never without power.

Dads love practical gifts – this Members Ultra-Lightweight Foldaway Backpack (£13.99) (available online only) will come in handy for camping, days out with the family and holidays.

On a smaller budget for a DIY gift?
